HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 11 October 2016

Cleanliness--excellent, in rooms, reception area, pool area, and breakfast room. Staff--Professional, though not particularly warm except for the maintenance man. Room--Room 431 was on the top floor on the end, and it was incredibly spacious! I don't know if all rooms are this way. It was a quiet location, as I'd asked. Everything was clean and functional and in good...

We chose this hotel for our wedding party/guests so they could stay relatively close to the ceremony/reception location. We booked this place months in advance and have had nothing but problems from the get-go. We went to book a shuttle bus thru them and had nothing but hard times. Then we called weeks in advance about letting our guests check...

This hotels pool is under maintenance and it's not listed on their site. Wi-Fi was down for 2 days and the guest were not made aware about this either upon check-in. I've been a Club Carlson member for over 10years and have always felt like I was at home upon arrival, #epicfailthistime

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are located near the the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and just 1 mile from Portage's Riverwalk beach park. We are a family friendly hotel with a large aquatic center featuring a kiddie pool, hot tub, swimming pool and an arcade area. We offer a great free breakfast every morning that includes fresh homemade waffles, various hot items like sausage and eggs as well as lots of fruits and cereals. We are just 45 minutes from downtown Chicago with great rail service available daily until midnight or later. The famed Lighthouse Outlet mall is less than 20 minutes away as are numerous casinos. Portage is a great place to vacation or just visit. Our beaches are second to none and our people are friendly and always inviting.. The famed Steel Mills of NW Indiana are just minutes away from the hotel so business clients are always welcomed. Specially negotiated rates are available for all contractors and vendors doing business with the mills. ... more   less
